This is my first, and current amp. I bought this about two years ago, and I was pretty damn pleased for it.The only things I have against it is the whole footswitch thing sucked. The wires they gave me went to hell within a year, as did the footswitch. The channel selection input kept falling into the box, and now I can't get the thing to work, with the input in place. It only gives me the choice of clean, and gain one. The gain 2 channel doesn't sound bad, providing a nice, smooth tone. The gain 2 channel has a nice, constant... buzz. And that sucks, but I live with it. Gain one is nice and crunchy, and I can get a decent blues sound out of it, among other sounds. Cleans nice and smooth too, and can get really loud... heh. The only other small complaint I have is the effects... eh. They don't really do it for me. The Rotatary speaker is pretty cool, but that was really it. All in all, a decent amp, especially for the price. I've recommended it to friends... but they never bought it... heh.

I've had this amp for about a year or so. I've been using it on occasion with a large variety dance band, miking the amp through the main sound system for better coverage. Overall, this amp is totally inadequate for my use. The tone variations are limited, when I try to play something with a jazz feel there's pretty much nothing there. (no, it's NOT my playing!) :-) Even with the amp amplified, the rock and funk doesn't have any presence. Overall, for lack of a better word, a 'wimpy' sound.It's features are kind of nice in theory (built in tuner, effects, 2 distortion/overdrives). I was hoping to have a small amp with a good sound. What I ended up with is a small amp . . . For a practice amp I think it's probably ok, but as a practical performance amplifier, useless, at least in my type of application.

Decent Amp

By zombie62190

from Streamwood, IL

When I bought this amp, I made the mistake of not playing it before I ordered it. I mean, it's a good amp. But if I had been more knowledgable of guitar equipment, as I am now, I wouldn't have bought it. I probably would've saved up for a Randall combo amp, to get a better metal tone.I gave it a 9 for Features because, frankly the distortion is very fuzzy and buzzes when you're not playing. The effects are cheap and VERY processed (the reverb isn't too bad). I gave it an 8 for quality, because I have to run a Line 6 POD through it to get a tone I like. For Value I gave it a 10, because it IS a decent amp for beginners. I just don't care for it.If you're just starting out playing guitar, then by all means buy this amp. But if you're a more experienced guitar player who knows what kind of tone they like and want, get something better.(*NOTE*: NEVER EVER buy ANY kind of equipment before you have had a chance to play it!!!)

Pretty ok amp with a lot of things gone wrong

By neednewguitarman

from canastota , NY

The Crate FXT65 Combo is'nt a bad amp but trust me it isnt the best either. Theres a lot of very frusterating things about this amp like it's effects are extremly crappy for example both wahs pierce your ears whith this unearthly sound the the octives tone is cruddy and if you have a grunge pedal and you put on the reverb all you hear is feedback and fuzz. Plus the effects made my amp 2 times louder. Also, the second distortian makes a lot of feed back and the pedal is a piece of junk. But there are some good things about this amp first of all the clean channel sounds good and if you have a few pedals to beef the amp up it sounds fine. Also, the amp is pretty loud for its size.

Decent amp

By Music Man-DGJ6y

from Seattle Washington

I would not by this amp again. The only reason I bought it was that a free squire came with the amp. Soon after I bought the amp the footswitch broke. If I could go back I would have bought a marshall. I dont like the distortion on the amp either because it sounds round and slightly fat, where I would like it to sound sharp and peircing.

beginner amp

By Metalhead-P8B0C

from Carthage, TX

Do not get this amp for the distortion. The built in distortion is not very good.I highly recommend buying a metalzone or deathmetal pedal. The other thing is the feedback...horrible feedback when you crank up the distortion. Pretty good amp for clean playing. I wouldnt recommend using the effects either because they suck. Price is okay also for this amp. Ive had it for about 8 months and am now trying to find a better amp. Not a good amp for playing loud.

Best amp ever for two years

By lespualguitarman13

from Eagle, Colorado

I have had this abp for two years and I love it. The level button on my guitar is really sensitive and I advise this for everyone that has this amp. There is no headphone jack but a stereo output. The have and epiphone With p 90s and this amp makes it sound so good. You'll definately have a good time if you get this awsome amp.

Wow I have been playing for 20 years and have played Mesa's and Marshalls. I never thought of buying a crate but I heard someone playing it and decided that was the sound I needed. I plugged in and have never used another amp since. Great Amp and it is louder than most 100 watts that I have heard. I play at big venues all over the country and this is the amp to get. It can play anything from the beetles, to Dream Theater. Lovin this amp, get one for yourself!
